    Wip Alliance/Union star map

    This is very much a WIP.

    It's my second attempt at the start of a map of the inhabited stars described in C.J.Cherryh's series of books about the Company War and its aftermath, which started with Downbelow Station.

    One of my self-imposed constraints is that the positions of the real stars be accurate, so what you see at this point is entirely computer generated: I wrote a program which translates the stars' equatorial coordinates into galactic coordinates and which then writes out a script to invoke ImageMagick to create the drawing. As a result, it is not yet very artistic (but I'm also a lousy artist.)

    Future enhancements will include the trade routes. I'm also considering drawing in the other (real) stars of the region, but haven't decided how to represent them.

    Comments and suggestions will be very welcome.
